When Taryn at Design, Dining + Diapers redesigned her family room recently, she had a limited budget but knew she needed a lot of storage. Aiming for something with a rustic look, she figured out how to make this gorgeous storage system from reclaimed wood.
The reclaimed wood is from our current favorite source of free lumber: pallets. Taryn could get them for free thanks to her brother’s workplace, then muscled them into the beautiful, crate-like shelves you see here. I really like the addition of the metal brackets. The whole system looks like it could be part of a display at Anthropologie.
Taryn has provided an excellent tutorial to demonstrate how to make these pallet shelves at Design, Dining + Diapers.
